. everyone from joe wilson who we were to as the scoutmaster -- who we refer to as the scoutmaster and jeff duncan who is not here with us, i have been afforded the great opportunities in the world to serve in the house of representatives. what has made more meaningful is to have served with these four guys and our scoutmaster. i look forward to continue to build. i have not won anything yet in the senate. i have to run for reelection in 2014. i look for to the opportunity to introduce myself to citizens throughout this great state. the future is incredibly bright for america. we have our challenges. we have things we have to overcome. boy does the future legree in south carolina. we are good together. they're better together. our future will reflect the good opportunities coming to our nation. i wanted to say to the governor, watching her from a distance has been incredible. i cannot imagine the daily pressures of governing this great state. i cannot imagine the areas that have flowed away all the time. i can see with clarity the conviction and integrity and character that you have given.
all proud. jeff couldn't be here. he has passed legislation that would make this nation energy independent. that is pretty impressive for somebody that has been in the house for one term and newly elected. tom, you bring to the table problem solving. you're chairman of the county council. you understand your district has got a lot of opportunity. you're the cash cow for the state. all of us are going to myrtle beach one day. that's the american dream to go to myrtle beach and he brings height to the delegation. so welcome. tim, the only advice i can give you is that you got here by being tim scott, not lindsey graham, not jim demint, just keep being tim scott and that will be good for our state. you have a unique opportunity for the conservative cause. you have unique burdens. i want to help you where i can. anything my office can do to help you get started we will do. the only advice i can give you is just keep being the good person you are. the thing about tim, not only is he good at being a congressman, he'll be a great senator. he is a better person than he is a politician.
. royce: i thank the gentlelady for yielding. i'd just like to begin by thanking jeff duncan and his staff as well for their good work on this legislation. but i would remind the members in terms of iranian activity in this hemisphere, we think what first comes to mind is the attack in the 1990's in argentina, but more recently hezbollah has penetrated our borders and one example i would give to you is a man trained by iranian intelligence. he paid a bribe in order to get to mexico from beirut. once in mexico he paid a second bribe, this time to a cartel group in order to have himself inserted in a special compartment in the back of a car. the reason is he important is because it was his brother who was in charge for security in israel and during the hezbollah war, and i was there at the time, i saw those missiles that were ordered launched by hezbollah into a town that was under attack. there were some 600 casualties in that hospital trarp a direct result of those iranian and syrian missiles that were being fired on the hospital. frankly it was one of the targets. but fired on that town,
. >> this is a question for jeff. social media is the platform for speech in general. isn't it true people hide behind their screens and say things online that it would not say face-to-face? does not change the way we speak to each other fundamentally? >> we talked about that. how do you see this evolving? >> as an artist, that is a sensitive question. i spent a lot of time discussing this with artists and musicians because criticism is painful. when you are sharing personal art. and that is -- that is one of the most painful things to write a personal song and read the youtube comments. but she is ugly. this is a big conversation right now between me and the artists. a used to be that you would just not read your reviews. that is pretty easy. now if you are engaging with their fans, your ability to go back and forth is directly polluted by people saying negative things that you come in can be very painful and i see. one thing about twitter is unlike youtube, it remains a generally positive place. those throwing out negativity look like assholes and it is easy to call those people out and say you're n
to work on bipartisan reform efforts with senator-elect jeff flake and my friend, paul ryan. and there are real opportunities in health care. now, i hope my republican friends will stop the charade we went through this last year and a half of repealing obamacare some 37 times. that train has left the station. the president was re-elected. it's not going to be repealed. the supreme court has decided it's constitutional. and most of the major health care players are busy at work implementing health care reform. but we have barely scratched the surface of the ability to squeeze more value out of the health care system. the united states does not have to spend nearly twice as much as all the other developed countries and actually have health care results that on average are worse than our european friends and japanese. we have the best health care for some americans but too many are denied health care and for many others are paying too much for results that aren't good enough. we know what to do. embedded in the health care reform act are elements of reform that used to have bip
.e please give them a big round of applause. i want to thank martin for hosting us. i want to thank jeff and gibby for giving me a great tour of the factory. i love coming. in addition to seeing the best workers in the world -- [cheers and applause] you also have all this cool equipment. i want to try out some of the equipment. the secret service would not let me. they said you're going to drop something on your head. they were wary eye when mess something up. i think they're happy the secret service would not let me touch the equipment. it has been a vet still over a month since the election came to an end -- it has been a little over a month since the election came to an end. it is now safe for you to turn your television is back on. all the scary political ads are off the air. you can answer your phone again. no one is calling you in the middle of dinner asking for your support. i have to admit. there is one part of the campaign i miss. it is a great excuse for me to get out of washington and comes to town like this and talk to people who work so hard every day looking out for their f
, jeff sessions, staff calculation of data from the congressional budget office and the office of management and budget, the president's plan suggests that roughly 75% of $1.2 trillion in new revenue be directed to new spending instead of deficit reduction. the fiscal cliff must be averted to protect our economy for future generations. yesterday, house speaker john boehner asked the president to identify specific cuts he's willing to make for a balanced approach. i hope the president will take immediate action so progress can be made for a bipartisan solution. in conclusion, god bless our troops and we will never forget september 11 and the global war on terrorism. the speaker pro tempore: the time of the gentleman has expired. the chair recognizes the gentleman from new york. >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. mig-ins: mr. speaker, there are many lessons to be learned in the wake of the hurricane that devastated parts of new york and new jersey. one of which is the importance of electronic m
or controls in place to stop this flagrant overspending. g.s.a. employees, including jeff neely, a member of the senior executive service, failed to follow policy, federal procurement law or basic common sense. this helps ensure senior executives or s.e.s. employees are accountable for their actions. it allows an s.e.s. employee to be fired for such actions. i'd like to commend my colleague, mr. kelly, for his work on this bill and urge all members to support its adoption. i reserve the balance of the time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from missouri. mr. clay: mr. speaker, i thank the majority -- the majority for working with us to make additional improvements to h.r. 6016, the government employee accountability act, as amended. i want to thank the gentleman, mr. kelly, from california, who introduced this bill to address an unfortunate intstans where a few senior executive service officials at the g.s.a. received a lot of attention regarding their extravagant spending on a los angeles -- a las vegas conference. while i fully support the purpose and intent of this legislation t
: gene says we need to register all guns. next call comes from jeff in texas. caller: i was just wondering, back when i was a teenager, young, dumb, and stupid. i did something stupid and got a felony charge and i'm 45 they are going still hold that against me. i bow hunt because i'm not allowed to own a gun. is there ever a statute of limitations of a felony convicted by a kid in order to purchase a gun? guest: this is a problem we hear quite a bit. people reform themselves and there is a system in place in most states and i'm pretty sure that texas has one too where the governor can grant a waiver to put you back into the pool of people that are able to obtain fire arms. but that is hard to do, it could be costly so it is difficult and this is one of the issues with the system. that being said, when the brady act was written in 1993 and when the gun control act was put in place, initially created a class of people that weren't allowed to own guns. they had to draw the line somewhere and people convicted of felony crimes, which are serious crimes, it made sense to put them in th
as opposed to being known for your music? >> no, i don't feel that way at all. i agree so much with what jeff said, it isn't media. it is a conversational tool. i remember being amazed and really feeling like things were changing when the first person came up to me and said, i am embarrassed to tell you this, i don't like your music, but i love your blog. i said, that is really flattering. any kind of connecting really is the means of the artist. i feel like a fundamental content provider. there are ways of bringing people -- just the same way that people don't care how they got in the door. there might be people out there that would never have heard about me. >> we like to write about journalists because we are talking aboobsessed with oursel. do you ever want to throw the stuff away and go right about city hall or something? writing about the ways that we communicate. is there some danger that is overwhelming? >> she is not at risk for being known for twitter than art. there is a larger danger that we are reading too much into technology. we tend to think that we make newspapers. we don't,
